Young Enterprise Workshop

Year 10 had a brief introduction to the world of business by attending a Young Enterprise workshop on Monday 29 January 2018.

Martin Morgan led the workshop accompanied by Nikki Picken, Sales and Marketing Manager of Bushmills Inn Hotel and Restaurant.  Pupils were introduced to the business concept of the marketing mix and the importance of meeting the needs of customers.  Nikki from Bushmills Inn gave them an insight on how the marketing mix applies to their hotel.  The workshop included challenging pupils to identify brands from a snippet of their logo, working in groups to make beaded bracelets and take on board the need to buy from suppliers, pay wages and taxes and still aim to make a profit.  Year 10 thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and excellent team work was evident during the workshop.  Well done to all!
